Has anyone else been enjoying the Verzuz Instagram battles?

I know I have! So far Swizz and Timb have managed to get these artists/producers/songwriters to battle:

Swizz Beatz vs Timbaland ( the first one)

Johnta Austin vs Ne-Yo

Teddy Riey vs. Babyface

Boi-1da vs Hit-Boy

Ryan Tedder vs Benny Blanco

Scott Storch vs. Mannie Fresh

The-Dream vs. Sean Garrett

Lil Jon vs. T-Pain

RZA vs. DJ Premier

Jill Scott vs Erykah Badu

Nelly vs. Ludacris

Bounty Killer vs. Beenie Man

Jagged Edge vs. 112

Who do y'all wanna see next? Do y'all like the battles too? Should they change things about it? Add new rules?

I was way into it when it was producers/songwriters because it was like the often unsung people behind the tracks that the average listener might not know, now that it's the main recording artists themselves with catalogues their assorted stans already know front-to-back I haven't bothered in like a month...

Overall, my wife and I have been enjoying them and the kids have gotten in on it once or twice when they recognize a song. I haven't seen all of them and hate that I missed Beenie Man/Bounty Killer (wife and I underestimated how much we'd enjoy a dancehall battle) but, of the ones that I've seen, my favs were Timbo/Swizz and Rza/Premier.

Everyday I think of one more "dream" Verzuz that I'd love to see but the old school funkateer in me wishes, most of all, for a Bootsy/Larry Graham Verzuz.

Yes, I know that I'm probably the only one on Earth fiending for that one but the OP asked so I answered...

I wish it were a real battle with new material, instead of them playing hits back and forth. Some of them brought new material in, but then they pulled out hits too.

Still one of the cooler more creative things to come of this weird time.
